Two win contracts to support Army infrared system

Two companies have won contracts to provide the Army with limited scope services.

The winners are:

  • Northrop Grumman – $10 million
  • BAE Systems – $8 million

These services will go to support the Army’s Common Infrared Countermeasure Technology Development phase system, the Defense Department said in a release.

The system is part of the Common Infrared Countermeasures program, which is an Army initiative to develop a lightweight, low-cost laser-based infrared projection system for helicopters and light fixed-wing aircraft.

Work will be performed in Rolling Meadows, Ill., and is expected to wrap up March 14, 2015.
